For divers short on time, why not combine a week diving the reefs of the Mombasa Marine Park with two or three nights at the Tsavo National Park?

There are a large range of dives available in Mombasa Marine Park, most within a short boat ride from your hotel. Turtles, white-tip reef sharks, enormous groupers, leopard morays, huge shoals of grey, and red snapper, surgeon fish, sardines and all manner of large pelagic fish are prevalent at the reef.

After your diving at Mombasa, spend a few days at Tsavo, one of the largest wildlife sanctuaries in the world. Its forests are filled with monkeys and birds, whilst most of Kenya’s wildlife is resident in the park, with large herds of elephant, prides of lion, and the recently relocated black rhino.
